WILLIAMSON CO. -- A Shelby County man was injured Tuesday morning in a traffic crash on Route 148.

It happened around 10:30 a.m. on Route 148 at Ogden Road.

Illinois State Police say a northbound Freightliner tractor-trailer had stopped to make a left turn onto Ogden Road when it was rear-ended by an International straight truck.

The International then hit a guardrail and overturned on its side in the northbound lane of Route 148. The truck's driver, Nick Hanfland, 30, of Sigel, Illinois, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Heartland Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Hanfland was cited for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

Route 148 was closed as crews worked to clear the scene.
